The Warakin Ti is an efficient, responsive, sprightly titanium bike that can handle any road in any weather. Using the progressive geometry of its Warakin Stainless predecessor, the Warakin Ti pairs unrivaled ride quality with the superior quality of titanium. It's a lightweight, durable, lively machine that will carry the rider to where they choose to go, while enjoying every pedal stroke along the way.
The 3Al/2.5V B338 grade 9 titanium that we use for the Warakin Ti is the same titanium that has been a bicycle industry favorite for decades, and with good reason. Equal parts science and magic, titanium is durable, lightweight, lively, corrosion resistant, and timeless. The tubing is seamless, butted, clean, and strong. It's because of the superior quality of titanium that we chose this material to lend to our heralded Warakin geometry as a bike that will endure the roughest roads in the harshest conditions and tell the stories for decades to come.
EXTRA TIRE CLEARANCE
If a bike is meant to ride any road in any condition, it needs to fit tires and wheels that will get you to and from your destination, while handling every bump along the way. The massive tire clearance of the Warakin Ti was built with this in mind. It'll fit 29" x 2.1" for that road that doesn't actually appear on the map, just as easily as 650b x 50mm for windy forest trails, or 700c x 35mm (or 700c x 50mm if you want a little extra) for your next gravel race. Because a frame that can last forever needs to have the ability to adapt to whatever the road (and the future) may bring.
Like all Otso bikes, the Warakin Ti sports our patented Tuning Chip rear dropout system, which allows the rider to lengthen or shorten the wheelbase by up to 20mm and raise or lower the bottom bracket by up to 4mm. For chunky gravel on remote roads, the longer wheelbase of the rear position is set for stability and comfort. For a quick spin around town or the CX course, the front position makes for snappy handling and agile control. The middle position? That's the best of both worlds. The Tuning Chip rear dropout system was designed because the bike should be just as versatile as its rider.
Designed by the Otso engineering team, Warakin Ti frames are built by top fabricators in Taiwan and come with a five-year limited warranty. All bikes and frames are inspected and assembled at our headquarters in Minneapolis, MN USA.
The progressive geometry of the Warakin Ti takes a page from the cross-country MTB playbook. Increased top tube length and a shorter stem maintain stack and reach while providing a lively ‘can-do’ attitude on rougher terrain.
EXTRA MOUNTING OPTIONS
Numerous braze-ons accommodate three bottles, fenders, racks, cable routing clamps, frame bags, and more. Mix in the Wolf Tooth B-RAD System to even further increase on-bike storage options.
The geometry of the Warakin Ti includes an axle-to-crown measurement of 420mm, which allows for a shorter suspension fork.
